Launched in 1953 and produced until 1963, the AC Ace was a two-door roadster based on a racecar model. The chassis of the AC Ace was very light and the tubular frame used large diameter tubes. Suspension was independent all around and the car was equipped with advanced featured including disc brakes and an optional overdrive gearbox. A 2-liter, straight-six engine, upgraded to a 120-hp Bristol engine in 1956, powered the first AC Ace models. In 1961, a Ruddspeed option was made available using a new 2.6-liter unit with three Weber carburetors, previously used on the Ford Zephyr. The performance of the car improved significantly up to 170 hp on some tuned up versions, which enabled a top speed of 130 mph and a 0-to-60 mph in 8 seconds.
